I Was Threatened After Inviting Mohammed Kudus To Play For The Black Stars – Kwesi Appiah Narrates Ordeal

Former Black Stars of Ghana coach, James Kwesi Appiah, has disclosed the threats he received when he invited Mohammed Kudus to play for the national team.

He narrated his ordeal in a recent interview that has come across.

According to him, some officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) threatened him following his decision to invite the young footballer.

This was the time that Ghana played against South Africa in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in 2019.

“Not only [Mohammed] Kudus but some other young players. There were people who felt the young players didn’t deserve the Black Stars call-up,” Kwesi Appiah said in an interview with Dan Kweku Yeboah TV.

He added: “But for me, I had watched them and I believed them. I always told my players don’t prove to me, prove to Ghanaians. If you do well that’s for your own good.

“My job was on the line because I was warned that if I lost the match I will be sacked. I didn’t mind because I knew I was doing what was good for the country.”

Meanwhile, Ghana won 2-0 against South Africa in that match.
